Arctic Monkeys' Jamie Cook to marry long-term girlfriend Katie Downes Arctic Monkeys Tickets
Guitarist and glamour model are now engaged to be married
The pair have been dating since 2006 after they met at a party in Liverpool and, according to The Sun, Cook proposed to the 28-year-old in the last few days. She told the tabloid: "I'm so made up – excited and happy."
Downes works as a glamour model and regularly appears on The Sun's notorious Page Three as well as Nuts, Loaded, Zoo and a series of other men's magazines.
Cook's proposal has coincided with the end of the Arctic Monkeys' world tour in support of their fourth studio album 'Suck It And See'. The band are now taking a break, but are expected to return to the studio later this year.
Speaking recently about their future plans, frontman Alex Turner said: "I think we're going to go the direction of those heavier tunes. We did 'R U Mine?', and I think that's where it's going to be at for us for the next record."
Turner then said that the band felt the strongest moments of 'Suck It And See' were the heavier bits, adding: "We feel the strength of the last record is 'Don't Sit Down…', the other songs like that – 'Brick By Brick' – the other side of it is fine, but I don't know how much more of that we can do."
